Aditya-L1

After the groundbreaking success of India’s moon mission, Chandrayaan-3, ISRO is gearing up for another mission but this time to the Sun. The India Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is set to launch its first space-based solar mission Aditya L1 on Friday. The launch is scheduled to take place on September 2 at 11:50 a.m. from the Sriharikota spaceport in Andhra Pradesh.

ISRO Chief S Somanath said the space agency was preparing for the launch and the countdown for Aditya L1 will begin today. He said that they were just getting ready for the launch. The rocket and satellite are ready and they have completed the rehearsal for the launch. 

Adiya-L1 spacecraft will provide remote observations of the solar corona and in situ observations of the solar wind at L1, the Sun-Earth Lagrangian point. The L1 point is located about 1.5 million kilometers from the Earth. 

Exceptionally, this will be India’s first space mission dedicated to observations of the Sun to be launched by the Bengaluru-headquartered space agency.

The ISRO team is ready for the launch, Somnath told the reporters. He said that the rocket, as well as the satellite, are ready with the launch also completed. The Indian space agency has commenced the mission’s countdown on Friday.

Aditya L1 will be placed in a halo orbit around the Lagrange point (L1) of the Sun-Earth system. A satellite that is placed in the halo orbit around the L1 point has the advantage of viewing the Sun continuously without any occultation/eclipses. This provides a greater advantage of observing solar activities and their effect on space weather in real time.

The location shall be a balancing point of the gravitational forces of the Sun and the Earth. The position where the two gravitational forces cancel out each other allows objects to stay at a fixed position, helping in the reduction of the use of fuel by the spacecraft.

The first Indian space mission to study the sun will carry payloads expected to provide crucial information to understand the problem of coronal heating, coronal mass ejection, pre-flare and flare activities, and their characteristics, dynamics of space weather, propagation of particle and fields, etc.

The PM question the people present at the rally that is it not a disrespect of Mata Shabri? Congress leaders inclination toward appeasement politics runs in their family.

For political appeasement, they won’t think twice about stealing the rights of Adivasis, the poor, and Dalits. Poor, young, and women are BJP’s top priorities, Modi said.

PM Modi criticized the Congress again during the rally for claiming that the BJP would alter the constitution.

The leaders of Congress recite the same old phrases whenever an election is about to happen, the PM said. He also said they claim that if the BJP wins power, it will renounce the constitution and abolish reservations. For how long will you continue selling lies?” he asked.

The prime minister continued saying that nobody can change the Constitution, even if Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar were to come and insist on it, it wouldn’t happen.

Those in the Congress threaten to break Modi’s head. Nobody can harm Modi as long as the mothers and sisters of this county stands by him. These mothers and sisters are Raksha Kavach, Modi remarked.

The prime minister further attacked the Congress after Viriato Fernandes, the party’s candidate for South Goa, asserted that Goa was forced to adopt the Indian Constitution.

Referring to his conversation with Congress leader Rahul Gandhi ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Fernandes said he had told him, when Goa was liberated in the year 1961, the Indian Constitution was forced upon us.

The prime minister said, Congress candidate from Goa says Constitution was forced upon Goans; is this not an insult of Ambedkar and Constitution.

In 2019 Lok Sabha elections the BJP had won 18 out of 42 seats in West Bengal. He asked Mamata Banerjee, what problem will she have if the Buddhist and Hindu refugees from Bangladesh get citizenship in India?

Shah further added if the people of West Bengal want to stop infiltration in the state, then they will have to make Narendra Modi the Prime Minister of India again. He said if the people of West Bengal want to free Bengal of violence, stop infiltration in the state, give citizenship to refugees, to stop disrespecting mothers and sisters of the state as it happened in Sandeshkhali, then  only way is to make Narendra Modi the Prime Minister.

Amit Shah said that PM Modi had sent Rs 7 lakh crore to West Bengal but the TMC indulged in corruption. He said one can see the houses of Trinamool Congress leaders; 10 years ago they used to live in a hut, moved on cycle and now all of them have 4-storey houses and move around in big cars. He added this is the money of people of West Bengal.

He added when Modi exposed the secret then the hidden agenda came out and this has left the people trembling.
